Title: Mechanical and electrical characterisation of anisotropic conductive adhesive particles
Authors: Dou, Guangbin
Issue Date: 2007
Publisher: © Guangbin Dou
Abstract: This thesis presents research into the mechanical and electrical characterisation of Anisotropic Conductive Adhesive (ACA) particles and their behaviour within typical joints. A new technique has been developed for study of individual ACA particle mechanical and electrical performance when undergoing deformation. A study of the effects of planarity variations on individual electrical joints in real ACA assemblies is presented firstly, followed by the research on the mechanical deformation and electrical tests of individual ACA particles undergoing deformation. In the co-planarity research, experiments introducing deliberate rotation between a chip and substrate were designed and carried out to simulate planarity variations in ACA assemblies. There are two outputs from this part of the research. One is the planarity variation effects on individual electrical joints in ACA assemblies, and the other is the effect of bond thickness on the resistance of a real joint. [Continues.]
